She became a wonderful friend to many! We could talk with her about ANYTHING! we talked on the phone reguarly! I remember for my birthday she surprised me with a phone call and I had not even realized I had listed my phone number (on FB). We had talked so often about meeting one another that I just felt like it was a given and would happen with in the next year.

Right after Christmas she was diagnosed w/ lukemia; this was to be an easy fight for her...two years before she beat a rare form of thyroid cancer.

I am sad to say that last night she lost her battle.

I know that she is no longer in pain and sitting w/the Lord looking down w/the great big smile that she always shared. (Even without seeing her face you could hear it in her voice and words)...

she lived for her two girls and her grandchildren! and quickly adopted many of our children...

I would like to dedicate this trip report in her memory...the last thing we shared was a comment she left on FB about how happy Ashton appeared and how she had liked his new haircut! (I had posted a few pictures while we were in WDW)
she enjoyed traveling with each of us and sharing in our everday lives!
That was beautful Connie
Ginny will be missed greatly. I always loved to talk to her, she always had something to tell me(:
She is certainly in a better place now

What a great tribute. So sorry to hear about Ginny. It is so amazing though how everyone can make such great friends on the DIS.

Oh--I just LOVE the opening show!! Glad you got to see it!! What cute pics with Pluto & Chip and Dale!!

I'm so sorry to hear about Ginny! I did not know her but she sounds like such a wonderful person. Leukemia is awful--I've had an aunt and an uncle die from leukemia--both at very young ages.

I have been so sad about Ginny. She really was a very special lady. I'm happy that she isn't in pain and that she is with God.

Yay! So excited to read your TR! I’m sooo glad you got everything you requested at POP! It makes the vacation a whole lot more enjoyable when you get what you requested! Ashton is too cute!! But sooo sad he hurt his head!!!!!!!! But I’m so glad he was ok…and he acted like a big boy! So cute!

Awww no food porn?? Hehe, it’s ok!! Yay for going to buy tickets but boo for getting lost!! At least they were able to add the water park and other options to their tickets and at least it was worth it at Disney Quest!

I was surprised about the pool being open 24 hours also!! Here where I work, the pool is only open 830am-630 pm! So I was really happy to know their pools were 24 hours! Woohooo!!

Awwww too bad you couldn’t resort hop!! I learned on this trip that it’s soo much fun! It’s also great to scope out other resorts for the next trip! OOoooohh EoS!!!!! I’ve never had it before but I’m craving to go back!! And we don’t have it here in Hawaii!!

Great pics of rope drop! You have to wait for my TR to see if we caught an MK RD!! Great pic with Pluto and the castle in the background!! And super cute pics with chip and dale!!

Can’t wait to hear more!!

p.s. so sorry to hear about your dear friend Ginny. I never knew her but she sounds like such a great person! My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go to her family & loved ones!!

I'm glad to hear you were able to get to MK to see RD. We really like it. Sam flips when he sees the train pull in. Yall sure did get some characters in that morning. I have never stopped at the bakery. I am always trying to get to my first attraction. Might have to stop there one day for a snack.

What a lovely tribute to Ginny. I'm sure she will be missed.

OT: next year is our 25 anniversary

Next year is Danny and I's 25th anniversary!
we were talking earlier today about next year...
Hawaii
Yellowstone
Las Vegas
Key West

considering we had orginally planned for Hawaii our 20th and had Ashton and a new hip instead; I'm leaning that way...
any one have any thing to share on any of the places listed...

TIA!
Connie

BTW: I am also trying to convince him he needs to go to a Nascar race next spring--so, Ashton and I can go to ?!?

Walt Disney World! I think that is going to be great tradeoff...don't you?!?

Hey, Connie. Well, Mark and I celebrated our 25th at...you'll never guess....Disney World.

We honeymooned in Hawaii and it was beautiful...but also very expensive (and even more so now). But I think everyone should do it once.

Have never been to Yellowstone (not something I'm especially interested in) or Key West (we've done Orlando, Tampa, Daytona Beach, St. Petersburg and Marco Island).

We've been to Vegas numerous times, but I'm not sure that is where I'd want to spend a 25th anniversary, unless you did it as a two part trip with another destination. Mark goes to Vegas twice a year on business and I used to always go with him in August. The problem is he goes for eight days and that is just too long to be in Vegas. It's 108 in the shade and although a dry heat, it's still HOT! Plus, I can only lay by the pool so much and shop so much (especially when I don't want to spend a lot of money). A three or four day trip would be more than enough.

Hi Connie! I just found your TR and had to read it from start to finish, even though I have to be up for work at 4AM tomorrow! Can't wait to hear more details! I'll be starting a TR soon!

I'm very sorry to hear about your friend Ginny. Your dedication to her is beautiful and I'm sure she will be missed by many!
